I think rubrics are a developmental thing and not all kids are ready to use them effectively in 3rd grade. I feel that having 4 samples to compare their work to will make them much more accountable. It’s visual. I will be able to say, “which sample does your writing most look like and why?” and ALL students can verbally respond to that. I don’t feel the same is true for a text-only rubric.
27 questions all stuffed in to the same circle gives students a real challenge. This puzzle is great for any high school geometry lesson on circles. It contains angles with their vertex in the circle, on the circle, and outside of the circle. These angles are all made using diameters, chords, secants and tangents.
